RATING- Mind-Numbing :(
QUOTE- "At first he declared he would put down the money immediately after the ceremony. But the wary Sugarman, schooled by experience, demanded its instant delivery on behalf of his other client. Hard pressed, Eliphaz produced ten sovereigns from his trousers-pocket, and tendered them on account. These Sugarman disdainfully refused, and the negotiations were suspended."

STORY #7- The Servant by S.T. Semyonov

RATING- Mmm...That's Good
